NL East Odds: Mets Given a 75% Chance to Win the Division Heading into Pivotal Braves Series

This series between the New York Mets vs. Atlanta Braves is what we call must-watch television. The New York Mets have a one-game lead after their come-from-behind win over the Miami Marlins.

Atlanta, lost to the Washington Nationals last night in extra innings to fall one game behind before this three-game set against the Mets. With six games to go, the NL East is very much so up for grabs.

Here's a look at the probable pitchers for the matchup this weekend:

  • FRI: Jacob deGrom vs. Max Fried
  • SAT: Max Scherzer vs. Kyle Wright
  • SUN: Chris Bassitt vs. Charlie Morton

NL East Odds Breakdown

The New York Mets are given a 75% chance to win the National League East according to the NL East odds. Atlanta, who is trailing by a game, is given a 24.39% chance to win it.

So far this year, the Mets are 9-7 against the Braves. The magic number for the New York Mets is six games so if they sweep the Braves, they win the National League East. Here's a layout of how it would play out for the Mets depending on what happens this weekend:

The Braves are fighting for their life this series for the division crown and have to go against two of the best pitchers in baseball in Jacob deGrom and Max Scherzer. Also, Chris Bassitt is no pushover on Sunday night.

The Braves have been red hot in September as they are 17-8 this month for a .680 win percentage. The last time these two teams played back in August, Atlanta took three out of four.

Football is obviously a huge storyline this weekend but let's not forget about some pennant race baseball. I'd be keeping a close eye on this series to see who comes out on top in the NL East.
